Henk had the concept in his mind after years of camping with his wife and wanted to make travelling affordable again. Now, with two sons, he enjoys outdoor adventures and has a growing passion to spread the opportunity to others around the world.

Sebastiaan has life-long camping experience, since early childhood. As a nature-lover, he has travelled all over the world. He is father to two kids, and spends much of his spare time pursuing his passion for camping on trips through-out New Zealand.

Both Henk and Sebastiaan are originally from the Netherlands and moved to Auckland, New Zealand in 2016. Initially only to travel but decided to settle in this beautiful country.

Take this as a warning, you might fall in love with NZ and stay here forever as well!
